Newcastle Falcons scrum-half Sonatane Takulua wins his 19th cap for Tonga on Saturday when he starts against Italy in Padova.
The Azzurri are on a high following last weekend's victory over South Africa, but Tonga too are in fine form after beating USA 20-17 last weekend.
Takulua assumed kicking duties for the San Sebastien clash, having kicked four from four and scored a try the previous weekend when they defeated Spain in Madrid.
Saturday's game kicks off at 2pm UK time and is live on BT Sport.
Takulua's Newcastle Falcons team-mate Evan Olmstead, meanwhile, starts for Canada on Friday night when they face Samoa in Grenoble.
